Drag Race: ‘70 Harbinger Mustang, ’07 Porsche 911, LS3-powered Ultra Four Buggy
What happens when a 1970 Mustang, a 2007 Porsche 911, and a LS3-powered Ultra Four Buggy are pitted against each other for a drag race? Mike, Greg, and Fred meet at El Toro Marine Base with a vehicle that represents their world for an ultimate showdown.
Agent 47’s 1970 Mustang fastback (with 1969 Mustang trim) dubbed “The Harbinger” was partially made out of 3D printer carbon, making it extremely lightweight at 3,000 lbs. Installed inside the engine bay is a Coyote 302 crate motor generating 420-rear-wheel-horsepower. With no mods to the internals on the motor, the modifications consist of a 3D-printed carbon airbox with help from K&N, modified long-tube headers and a tune. The Harbinger is driven by Mike Finnegan, Staff Editor at Hot Rod.
Representing the tuner world, the all-wheel-drive 2007 Porsche 911 “Project Grip” by BBI Autosport puts out 600hp to the wheels on pump gas. Donned with Apple stickers, the Porsche has a 3.6L in the back, and a full Street Comp suspension package. The Porsche is piloted by Greg Emmerson, Editor of European Car Magazine and www.EuroTuner.com.
The Ultra Four Buggy is owned by Randy Slawson of Bomber Fabrication, and it was raced once during King of the Hammer where Randy took the win. This rugged buggy has Currie Enterprises axles, a hopped-up 425 LS3 from CBM Motorsports and big King shocks all around. Fred Williams, Technical Editor from Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off Road, drives the off-road LS3 Buggy pitted against the other two cars.
